What is Bioclear and how can it help Me Create the Smile I Have Always Wanted?
Everyone wants a great looking smile, but very few of us were born with perfect teeth. What if you could get your dream smile quickly, easily, and affordably? Now you can with Bioclear®. Bioclear® is a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment that enhances your smile. Dr. Carroll is one of the few Bioclear® certified dentists in Florida to provide this next generation restorative treatment. Dr. Carroll uses this revolutionary treatment to fill in black triangles left by gum recession or bone loss or as an alternative to dental crowns or dental bridges in order to repair a damaged tooth or several teeth.
You probably have never heard of Bioclear® and may have questions about this new type of treatment. Here are the answers to some of your most asked Bioclear® questions.
Q: What happens during the Bioclear® procedure?
A: The First step is to remove any trace of biofilm from your teeth. This is done by gently polishing it away with a special cleaning powder and specialized instruments to remove the microscopic sticky layer that accumulates on the surface of the teeth (without damaging the tooth surface). Next, we apply a thin mylar forms that hugs the tooth and provides the mold for a new tooth surface. Then, liquid composite resin is inserted into the form molds. The resin is then hardened using a special ultraviolet light. The tooth is then shaped and polished to have a new beautiful shiny and smooth finish.
Q: Why would I use Bioclear® instead of a crown or bridge?
A: The primary reason to opt for Bioclear® is that the treatment is so much more conservative. It allows for the preservation of more natural tooth structure. For a conventional crown or bridge, we must grind away a large amount of the tooth surface into a peg shape to accommodate the restoration. With Bioclear® there is no need to grind, we build up on the existing tooth structure instead. Another reason to choose Bioclear® is that dental crowns and bridges are more at risk to recurrent decay. Decay starts at the edge of the crown or bridge and can progress underneath it if not addressed right away.
Q: Does insurance cover Bioclear® treatment?
A: Since Bioclear® is a relatively new alternative to traditional dentistry, it is more than likely NOT covered by your insurance. For posterior teeth, the cost of Bioclear® is often similar to the out-of-pocket expense with insurance. You can use your dental benefits for other necessary procedures.
